Additive Manufacturing Software & Software Engineering: ELISE becomes Synera

ELISE, a software company that develops a generative engineering platform that helps engineers accelerate product design and automate the development process using all required software tools, has announced its rebranding as Synera.

The company that recently joined the Altair Partner Alliance and whose generative engineering platform’s capabilities have been seen through various applications, was founded in 2018 and turned stealth mode off in 2020 at the AM Forum in Berlin.

However, the founders Dr. Moritz Maier, Sebastian Möller and Daniel Siegel started working on the development of ELISE about a decade ago, with the goal of achieving their development goals in bionic design and lightweight constructions.

At that time, we literally wrote our mission into our name: ELISE stands for Evolutionary Lightweight Structure Engineering. We wanted to break new ground by using not only research but also state-of-the-art software and technology. However, we soon realized that the solutions we needed for our work simply did not exist.

We, therefore, began to develop the tools we had always wanted in order to help our customers achieve their goals better and faster. This led to a new category of software solutions that we call “Connected Engineering”. And so we evolved from a service provider to a software company.

ELISE, then, as now, is above all one thing: a solution by engineers for engineers.

With ELISE, we have since made our contribution to enabling engineers to work together faster, better, and more effectively. All based on a “low-code” platform that connects people, departments, and external software solutions to achieve breakthrough results.

Backed by a €14.5 million investment from our great investors Spark Capital, BMW i Ventures, Cherry Ventures, UVC Partners, and Venture Stars, we are now embarking on a new era that harnesses synergies better than any other development approach on the market. We believe in becoming the go-to tool for engineers and we are committing to this vision with our new name: Synera”, the company says.

The company states that the switch from ELISE to Synera should not have a negative impact on user experience. Visual adjustments were made in some places and the design elements of the Synera brand were transferred to the software.
